scored better than governor romney in the debate? >> no. i thought it was a tie. he had to look presidential and he did do that. would i have liked him to be more aggressive? yes. do i think that the team didn't prepare him for the aggressive romney that i saw a few weeks ago on the sunday shows? i think they didn't prepare him. the president has to look presidential. i don't think president obama is going to call mitt romney a liar on the next debate. that's not presidential. he will be more aggressive. i don't think mitt romney is necessarily a liar, he just manages to convince himself that any position is fine at the time. ted kennedy said it best when romney debated ted kennedy, i'm the pro choice candidate, my opponent is the multiple choice candidate. mitt romney says whatever he has to say. there's no core belief there. that is going to be a problem for him in the general election. i think people are into that. i think they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. he pretty much tells it like it is. did he do a good job in the debate?
. romney says the president really made the economy worse according to governor romney, the numbers are deceptive in part because some people have quit looking for work. >> the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day the president got elected unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> romney is backtracking on controversial remarks dismissing 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. in an interview last night on fox news he said the comments were "just completely wrong." firefighters quickly knocked out a brush fire in a homeless area today. it started about 8:30 just a few blocks north east of the 880/101 split. firefighters kept it from spending beyond the homeless incampment. >>> -- america's cup races are this weekend along with a lot more. all those crowds mean a little extra planning to get around. >> san francisco will be practically over run this weekend. about 40,000 people will be watching the america's cup races. fresh off their division clench giants fan
